Hi i Am married for 12 yrs and want to be loyal to my wife. We don't yet have children and don't have a diagnosis of why. But my problem is more psychiatric now. My wife and me used to have a very loving relationship for couple of years. But slowly we had several arguments over silly things over the years and she kept blowing things out of proportion. I had an affair. I ended that and my wife though upset, also understood that situations drove me to it and her mistake also there for fighting immaturely over silly things. But my best friend who was supportive to us in the troubled times is now having an emotional affair with my wife. I don't think they had a sexual relationship, but she is emotionally attached to him and her text messages to him say she loves him. After all this; my emotions are in a turmoil and I tend to seek love outside and now talk to a couple of women intimately. I fear am turning into a love addict or something. My sexual relationship with my wife has been just once in a month or even less for nearly a year now. I know it's not a physical problem that I have and purely psychological. I have not confronted her or anything. But she knows I suspect her of having a relationship with him, but still continues to text him and such behind my back. At times she also acts loving with me. Our relationship has become like actors with no idea of what is true or not. Am 40 and she is 35. We are also running out of time to have a child. But in all this state I can't seem to want a child and she too refuses treatment. It's a stalemate now and I don't know how to solve the problems and which to tackle first. I am aware that a relationship has to be built on trust and such, but don't know how to break out of this vicious cycle and my seeming addiction of running after women.

Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These relationship problems are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. Take care.

Sexual orientation cannot be change and as this is not a disorder, so do not worry about its treatment. But it is commonly associated with anxiety, depression, adjustment disorder, self harm and isolation because of social complication as you must have been facing. As it is not a disorder according to medical science, no treatment available to change orientation. So stop accepting it as an illness and accept yourself as you are naturally. Also be aware of sexually transmitted disease and AIDS as it is very common with homosexuality because of unprotected relations. Final message to you: Do not worry about god given orientation, work on acceptance of your natural sexual orientation and counseling from psychologist in much distress.

Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Dear Naveen, Unless i know what is the chemical name and dose of your hair fall drug, i can not answer your question. There are many drugs which interact with alcohol - sometimes increasing its effect,sometimes decreasing its effect. However Naveen, why don't you stop drinking for the sake of your hair now. Think, decide and stop. Take help if necessary - medical help is there to control withdrawal symptoms, to reduce craving for alcohol, even making you to hate alcohol.

Smoking is a major problem nowdays with youngsters you are one among them. I understood your problem. As you are very young need to stop smoking immediately. First you decrease smoking gradually by reducing the numbers along with breathing exercise in the morning. Anticraving drugs and nicotine replacement therapy also will helpful.

I have daughter who is 24 years old. We got her psychological test done 2 years back and as per doctor she had been identified as border line personality disorder. We tried that she take counselling but every 2 to 3 sessions she leaves it saying it is useless and I am alright. The impact is aggression in personality which is more when she comes close to her mensuration cycle. I need advise on medication counselling and how to tackle as a parent. Please suggest if we can find some good doctors in Bangalore.

Yes it can be one of the reasons, but not the final reason. Ask her to practice reading anything loudly in a room, practice will solve the problem, and of course you can visit the dentist to find out other reasons.

Try to exercise on most days. You don’t have to go to the gym. A 30-minute walk four times a week is enough to provide benefits. Thirty minutes of activity every day is even better. Pick something enjoyable, so you’ll stick with it. Choose activities that play to your physical strengths or that you find challenging yet fun. Team sports can be a good choice because the social element keeps them interesting. Get out into nature. Studies show that spending time in nature can reduce the symptoms of ADD/ADHD. Double up on the benefits by combining “green time” with exercise. Try hiking, trail running, or walking in a local park or scenic area. Tips for getting better sleep Have a set bedtime and stick to it, and get up at the same time each morning, even if you’re tired. Make sure your bedroom is completely dark and keep electronics out (even the dim light from digital clocks or your cellphone can disrupt sleep). Avoid caffeine later in the day, or consider cutting it out entirely. Implement a quiet hour or two before bed. Try to turn off all screens (TV, computer, smartphone, etc.) at least an hour before bedtime. If your medication is keeping you up at night, talk with your doctor about taking a lower dose or taking it earlier in the day.

Hi lybrate-user, you might be suffering from depression, anxiety, or even icd. Insomnia on its own, is a very rare condition. You must consult with a psychiatrist, who can address the cause for your insomnia and advice appropriate treatment. Good luck.
